|In response to Re: Toto Ultramax in Current Consumer Reports: Disappointing Performance?|
: I noticed that the Toto Ultramax didn't do so well in the toilet tests in Consumer Reports latest issue.
: The Ultramax was listed in the group that didn't clear solids too well.
: The Toto Carlyle was listed as the best of the gravity flush models but below many vacuum and pressure
: I was somewhat surprised at the results since the Ultramax is so highly recommended both in Terry's report
: Could it be that the artificial solid wastes used by Cunsumer Reports do not accurately model the real thing?
: FWIW, I bought a Toto "Ultimate" and it has been working wonderfully. It has yet to clog where the old
: Thoughts or comments?
However, not everyone likes the sound curve on the pressure toilets.
When you consider that maybe half of the population sits down while flushing, it becomes a real issue.
You will note that on their page, they list the Toto Carlyle toilet as very good at waste removal while they list the Ultramax as only "fair"
The report I've provided is based on homeowner and plumber feedback.
